    My 7mm SAUM

    I've had this a few months now and am in the final stages of load development.It's my idea of my ultimate alround rifle. Had thought about posting this a wee while ago but hadn't gotten round to it until @Mathias gave me a bit of a poke and prod
    Thanks to Dean Maisey for building it but a huge thanks to @camo wsm an absolute champion of a guy who helped me out no end with everything really from start to finish. Thanks mate

    Yes have got a radial brake for it but was hoping to be able to shoot it without which I can comfortably do.

    Nice I like it. Have you shot it yet? Is it going to wear anything on the end of the barrel? I imagine it being quite lively at 3.3kg

    Yep, I'm in the stages of load development at the moment. Was hoping to be able to shoot it without the brake which i can do comfortably.
